I used to think that I missed out on something because I never got to spend my life with you. I soon realized it would have been a lifetime of misery. Sometimes, missing out on something is gaining something much more valuable: happiness
The first step into finding someone who fits your mode of a "ideal" partner is first examining how you view yourself as a person. We usually forget to look inward and are always looking outwards for things and people to satisfy our needs. But we must first examine how we feel about ourselves because how we feel attract what we receive in our lives.
